Creating Safe Spaces Training

As part of fulfilling God’s call to love one another, the Baptist Churches of NSW & ACT are committed to creating safe spaces in our local church contexts. We are committed to safe ministry practice which is God-honoring, person-valuing, respectful, and free from harm and abuse. Safe ministry is more than simply a risk management exercise or fulfillment of our legal obligations. Rather safe ministry is first of all an outworking of what James 1:27 calls true religion – caring for the vulnerable (widows and orphans), and an expression of what is required of all people, that is “to seek justice, love, mercy and walk humbly before our God” (Micah 6:8).
